Learning Techniques, Strategies, and Activities

The -ism's of learning:

The higher education literature is replete with all sorts of -ism's associated with the learning cycle or process: constructivism, behaviorism, cognitivism, rationalism, and so on. Each -ism has its own theoretical (and oftentimes abstract) construct and assumptions. But as we all know from empirical evidence and experience, the cycle of learning is not a nicely packaged, well defined discrete entity but rather it's an overlapping continuum of processes that work well for a particular student population and perhaps not so well with another different student population. So as a faculty it's best to have a broad portfolio of learning techniques that you can employ, when appropriate, in your class. The links below describe a number of learning techniques that may fit smartly into your teaching "bag of tricks". Enjoy.
